Bell Ringing on Wednesday evenings

stmarys-church-clock2Have you thought about becoming one of our bell-ringers? Bell ringing is a team activity that stimulates the brain and helps keep you fit…. it also makes a glorious sound!. Ringers come from all walks of life and range in age from ten to those in their seventies.

Bletchingley’s church bells are some of the finest in the country and although some are nearly 250 years old, we use the latest equipment and up to date methods for teaching people how to ring them.

New Ringers are always welcome. Why not come and see whether it would interest you – we are seeking more ringers NOW to join our existing band to help to maintain this very traditional skill. You will find our ringers in the church tower, every Wednesday evening from 7:30pm to 9:15pm and we ring the bells for Sunday services and for other special occasions.

If you would like to find out more about bell ringing, come along to the church tower on a Wednesday evening at about 8pm (through the large door at the west end of the church), speak to any of the ringers, or to Ed Muller on 742 799.
